Dear Sergeant Crowley,
You gotta understand,
It's just our bringing up-ly
That get us out of hand!
Our mothers all are negroes
Our fathers all are black
Golly, naturally we talk back!!
All: They Talk Back!
Gee, Officer Crowley, we're very upset;
We never had the teaching that
every child oughta get
We really don't hate whitey
We salute the President
We're just not that subservient!
All: Not That Subservient!
Gee, Officer Crowley, it's really a shame,
Gates don't need handcuffs,
the guy walks with a cane
You could've used a taser
or maybe sprayed some mace
The Prof just doesn't know his place!
All: Know His Place!
Gee, Officer Crowley
People call you a racist, you're in the culture war
Just like Obama, Alito and Sotomayor
I hope you've learned a lesson
Now that you and Barack are mates
Don't fuck with Henry Louis Gates!
All: Don't Fuck With Henry Louis Gates!
All: Just....Don't.. Fuck... With Heeeenry Looouis Gaaaaates!
